Last week I was treated to a closer look at the Valentino Autumn/Winter 2012 collection. Ever since Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pier Paolo Piccioli took over as creative directors I’ve loved the design direction that Valentino has been taking. The fashion house is definitely back on top.
The Fall collection is romantic but still has an edge, with dresses that would look fantastic on the red carpet (someone please call Florence Welch), as well as beautifully embroidered coats and show-stopping accessories. Here’s a closer look at Valentino A/W 2012:
The detail on this dress is amazing – photos cannot do it justice
Some serious handbag bling!
Slipper shoes (and studs) are still in fashion
The finale dress [far right] took longer to make than some couture gowns

Everyone loves a studded clutch bag, right?
This coat is one of my favourite looks from the collection
The studded kitten heel is still going strong!
Animal print makes an appearance…
For some reason this handbag makes me think of Elle Fanning
